Gareth BS: Militarism & the US culture of violence (77* d) RE: BS: Militarism & the US culture of violence 05 May 04


Hmmm ! "Did you have a brother on the 'Rueben James'

About 4 feet away from this 'Puter is my wardrobe. In it is a US of A Coast Gaurd uniform jacket given to my Grandfather as survivors clothing after he was picked out of the North Atlantic in 1941 by a US of A nuetrality patrol vessel.

So please don't give me any of that crap.

I will also mention that he was also picked out of the water in 1939, by a German merchant ship heading into Norway, and released as a survivor. The basic converstion was "thank God we are heading into a neutral port"

My late grandmother kept up a post war correspondance with the Master of the german ship untill his death in the 1950's.

PQ17 did him, and it was a sailor's grave, as a merchant seaman.

Think about that one.
